What's your doc about - in 10 words or less?
The unspoken emotional world of boys at a private school.
How'd you first hear about the story?
From inside my head. I was interested in the moment when we try to find ourselves as teens.
Any access problems?
Oh yeah. Teenage boys are devious.
Did you have favourites among them?
My favourites are my subjects.
As a woman in a mostly male environment, was it easier or harder?
There's actually something easier about being different, and my DOP, Mark Ellam, helped connect with the boys - so we were a good team.
If you remade your film as a drama, who would star?
A younger Michael Cera and Kevin Kline's son from The Squid And The Whale.
Favourite scene that didn't make the final cut?
The boys talk about how no one has come out of the closet at the school for a number of years.
Last doc that made you laugh?
Gates Of Heaven by Errol Morris.
24 City by Jia Zhang-ke.
